“If You Build It, They Will Come”

The famous phrase from “Field of Dreams” speaks to what happens when you have dreams and believe in what you are doing. Farmers are all about faith. Faith in nature, faith in yourself, faith in the fruition of hard work, followed by a cold beer after a hard day’s work. But I digress. Thank you to the following for contributing to our first Indiegogo attempt: Ken Frank, LRae York, Kim Mossbrook, Erik Streeter, Prish Moran, and Arin Quintel. Your reward has been mailed. Hope you enjoy. We did not meet our goal, but we learned. And learning is worth its weight in gold. The future looks good for us. We have attended one of the first local farmers’ markets of the year, a new one at the Town Hall in Berwick, ME. It has been a huge success. The people are coming, to get out of the cold, and, to […]

Reaping the Harvest

August was very fruitful indeed as Mother Nature blessed us with the most wonderful tasting fresh organically grown peaches and blueberries. We made peach and blueberry jam and delicious sweet and spicy salsa. Yum! Mother Nature also finished picking the peaches off the peach tree while we were sleeping. It seems the raccoons were well fed as well. Nature takes care of all, equally. The wedding of Jake and Sarah was the high point of August. What a wonderful wedding for a wonderful couple in a wonderful setting on an equally wonderful day. We feel blessed and congratulate the bride and groom! We were blessed as well by some great Farm Stay people who wanted to learn a lot about farming. The trend seems to be a renewed interest in helping small family farms stay afloat in an extremely difficult economic environment, and many people are growing their own food, […]
